So, who are Logan’s Heroes? They are founding and scientific advisory committee members. They are walkers, volunteers, sponsors, and the family members who do what they do to support and honor those affected by breast cancer. Logan’s heroes are the survivors who have walked before, during and after breast cancer treatment, surgery and reconstruction. Some of these women have fought the disease more than once. They walk, they volunteer, they sponsor and they donate.
Mostly though, Logan’s Heroes are that “every-day” person who makes a personal sacrifice to train for a marathon and meet their fundraising commitment or finds a way to make a difference through volunteerism.
In 2005, our Founder, Norma Logan led a team of 30 walkers and 7 crew members in a three day walk from Nashua, NH to Cambridge, MA. She presented each team member with custom dog tags dubbing us “her heroes.” One tag captures the event name and date and the other tag simply says, You are my hero … Love, Norma.
After Norma decided to start her own non-profit she reached out to her team members and other colleagues/friends to recruit volunteers to help her carry out her vision. In words borrowed from Norma, “We share a connection that will never be broken whether you participate in our non-profit, join us on the Walk across Southeastern Connecticut, or write a check.
